According to a report by German blog Computer Base, while Nothing advertises a peak brightness of 1200 nits on the Phone (1), its peak brightness is capped at 700 nits. The blog site performed several tests with HDR videos to determine if there are specific conditions under which the phone reaches up to maximum brightness levels.
